Steven Gerrard has revealed that he suffered an injury at a place which is a nightmare for any man. Just thinking of the injury is enough to get nightmare.
In an excerpt from his new autobiography, the Reds Legend has revealed that an errant cross went straight at his manhood, leaving him needing stitches on his penis.
The Los Angeles Galaxy has described the injury as “eye-watering” and indeed it is. But he threw in a clever little joke about what he asked the doctors after being stitched up.
“The magic of the FA Cup was bloodied on the day my penis was cut and then stitched shut on an unromantic afternoon in Bournemouth last year.”
“It was eye-watering. I tried to close down a winger to block his cross but felt a stinging in my privates. I thought, ‘S*** — that doesn’t feel right!’ It was stinging like f***.”
“The gash looked pretty bad, right across the middle. There was plenty of blood. I needed four stitches and the lads were absolutely p*ssing themselves.”
“Ouch. I hoped I wasn’t saying goodbye to an old friend. I got a jab first and was careful not to look at what he was doing.”
“After I had been bandaged up as protection against any possible infection, I asked the obvious question. ‘Can I play against Everton on Tuesday?'”
